    500 years after the Reformation, theologian Martin Luther has been rated as one of the 100 most influential people.  He made a dramatic discovery of the heart of God's Word in the Theology of the Cross.  Why did his shocking teaching upset the world?  Join Pastor Andrea to discover how Luther changed Christianity and hear God's Word in new ways, as we study the earth changing themes from Romans that took hold of Luther and changed the world!

  • Spiritual Practices:  Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer
    ●Lectio Divina
    May 21, 28, and June 4
    Tuesday   Tempe Sanctuary   7:00 pm

    ●Centering Prayer
    June 12, 19, 26, July 3, 10, and 17
    Wednesday   Gilbert Sanctuary   7:00 pm

    Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer are two methods of contemplative prayer.  We will gather to practice these forms of prayer together.

    Each prayer session will include how to information about these forms of prayer, and then we will practice praying together using these methods.

    Both Lectio Divina and Centering Prayer can be done individually or in a group setting.
      It is our hope that participants will become comfortable praying in these ways and then incorporate these prayer disciplines into their daily routine of prayer as the rhythms of life allow.

    Pastor Doris will serve as the group leader.

    For more information or to sign up, contact Pastor Doris
